It is with deepest regrets that the current conditions surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic has forced the cancellation of the Harvest Folk Festival at Murray’s Mill in Catawba. This was a difficult decision to make, and we did all that we could to prevent this unfortunate decision. Please note that our first priority is to protect the safety of all guests, volunteers and staff.

    If you have concerns or wish to discuss these decisions further, please contact Executive Director, Bo Teague at or call Tuesday, September 20-Friday, September 24 between the hours of 8:30 - 4:00 at (828) 465-0383
